    It's about filling a niche. Some are better protected, some have better mobility/range, and some are cheaper.

    And some are simply already there (Iveco) so no point throwing them away

    True, but when they finally pick what they want the others will melt away to oblivion and be forgotten, while the winner will become the next BRDM-2 so to speak.

    For instance there are not plans to adopt all the Tigrs... they are tested and evaluated and improvements and changes are made so then comes the Tigr-M... and now the Tigr-2... when they get it to what they want there will only be Tigr-x being produced... the others will disappear.

    The Iveco types have been made AFAIK and wont be renewed... a dead end really.

    I doubt they would just start dumping them, there is always room in low risk areas (Central Siberia) for no frills vehicles and a lot not them would be handed down to national guard and police SWAT teams

    They had like 300 Iveco kits in storage already so it would have been wasteful not to put them together and use them since they are there already

    As for this one I hope that Russia puts them up for discount sale

    They may not be rough enough for Russian wilderness but they are perfect for Serbia and we are sitting on mountain of Iveco spare parts

    No, what I am saying is that the test models are not being made and put into service in enormous numbers and improved models are being introduced and tested all the time, but the number of older models was never enough to replace existing types, which will still be in service until a final upgraded model is ready for mass production to start replacing them.

    They had a range of light vehicles in the past for a variety of roles from MTLB tractors to BRDM-2 light wheeled vehicles to UAV jeeps and everything in between... existing test vehicles will likely continue to be used and perhaps upgraded but eventually discarded and not replaced with another of the same type... they will likely get a new type for a replacement.

    Regarding vehicles they got in batches... Iveco springs to mind, their were some problems with them in deep snow or mud and cross country so finding roles where such things are not a problem would allow them to be used in situations where their problems are not relevant and they can be effective... or they could sell them to Syria or Iraq or Afghanistan.

    They may not be rough enough for Russian wilderness but they are perfect for Serbia and we are sitting on mountain of Iveco spare parts

    Send them a note... would solve their problem and help you guys out at the same time...

    Judging from triangular cabin shape it's a proper MRAP now unlike previous version which was just armored vehicle

    Wheel size and ground clearance is same which is good as well as addition of two more passenger doors

    So far looking good although I hope that grill is just placeholder because it looks lame as hell (wire mesh over it with manufacturer logo should do wonders just like on previous version)

    Funny the grill annoys you... it seems fine to me... lets air in but would stop bullets most of the time, so it does its job... what annoys me is the bumper bar... it is fricken tiny... why not put huge ass bull bars on there that at least extend out sideways and stop things hitting the wheels too...

    I don't mind grill, every MRAP has one exactly like it

    What I mind is absence of 10$ wire mesh to cover it, Kamaz Typhoon 4x4 has one so why skimp here?

    Just looking again I noticed those wires attached to the front mud guard and next to the sides of the windshield... I am guessing this is in lieu of wire cutters?

    Russia is so terrible at civilian car market, yet when it comes to military vehicles I can only say that they are one of the leading countries. Look at all the selection of MRAPs. There's so much options to choose from. And they are not made out of scratch, but from reliable components of trucks that were in service for long time so logistics are not an issue. One might say that It's tad bit too late as Chechen wars are over, but now there's so much to choose from. VDV have their own air droppable MRAP, even the ones armed with mortars and high calibre guns. Various military branches can use Tiger-2, Kamaz 4x4s can go to specialised units, Rosgvardia can operate whole bunch of systems as they will be mainly road users and need mobility. And beauty is that Russia can have variety of MRAPs in service and it wouldn't cause a logistics nightmare.
